Social Well-Being Within Planetary Boundaries: the Precautionary Post-Growth Approach

Partial Report for the “Approaches to Resource Conservation in the Context of Post-Growth Concepts” project


What relevance does economic growth have for achieving environmental policy goals? The report analyzes the arguments of various positions in this discourse and formulates an ideal-type " precautionary post-growth position". It also presents causes of economic growth and identifies social areas whose function could depend on economic growth. Furthermore, reform proposals are discussed to reduce this dependence on growth. The report shows the complexity of the growth debate and provides impulses for the public dispute on how social welfare can be realized within planetary boundaries.
